The German club has managed to agree on the conditions of the contract with Umar Sadiq, but they still have to close the fringes of the operation with the rojiblanca entity. In the next few days there could be news.

However, Almería press also reveals that the Umar Sadiq has left his house in El Toyo this morning, to which he moved from his previous residence on Camino del Bobar (Vega de Acá) less than a year ago.
